Lyrics:
Broke into the old apartment
this is where we used to live
broken glass
broke and hungry
broken hearts and
broken bones
this is where we used to live

why did you paint the walls?
why did you clean the floors?
why did you plaster over
the hole i punched in the door?

this is where we used to live
why did you keep the mousetrap?
why did you keep the dishrack?
these things used to be mine
i guess they are
i want them back

broke into the old apartment
Forty- two stairs from the street
crooked landing
crooked landlord
Narrow laneway filled with crooks
this is where we used to live

why did they paint the lawn?
why did they change the locks?
why did i have to break it,
i only came here to talk?

this is where we used to live
how is the neighbor downstairs?
how is her temper this year?
i turned up your tv and
stomped on the floor just for fun.

i know we dont live here anymore
we bought an old house on the danforth
she loves me
her body keeps me warm
im happy here.

this is where we used to live
broke into the old apartment
tore the phone out of the wall
lonely memories
fading memories
blending into dull tableaux
i want them back
i want them back
this is where we used to live
i want them back
this is where we used to live
i want them back
i want them back.
(sirens out)
